Essential (developer) tools: A biased list

A list of tools I’ve come to depend on (and would severely miss if not present) during everyday work in the trenches:

Development tools:

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • LINQPad (www.linqpad.net)
  • ReSharper (www.jetbrains.com)
  • Reflector (redgate.com), essential developer tool when things get real ugly
  • NotePad++ (www.notepad-plus-plus.org), the greatest open source editor you’ll ever find (trust me!)
  • Windows Phone Developer Tools (Phone API), part of VS2010
  • VS 2010 extensions:
    • GhostDoc (www.submain.com), great documentation tool
    • Productivity Power Tools (Microsoft), neat tool with a large number of useful context menu items
